I like the bike racks! Among other things, it's a lovely trailer. I've had the thought a few times to talk to a welder about what options the back of the scamp would support.

Thanks for the kind words Lew, and yes it was staged for some pics. Christopher from Parkliner didn't get a chance to take some pics before this one left the factory, so he asked me to send him some.

Dylan, On my Scamp 13 deluxe that we had previous, I did add on a 2" receiver to carry some bikes. One thing you have to be careful of is adding too much weight to the rear and thus getting some sway. I didn't have any problem as I had two propane tanks + battery, so I had enough tongue weight. Some like Floyd have put bike racks on the tongue with excellent results.

A bike and rack are about all the weight I'd consider adding to the very rear of my scamp.

I do like the idea of 1 1/4 receiver, that's what I have on the car. So when not towing, the bike rack could go onto the car. But I worry that that type bike rack will stick the bike way out from the back adding lever action, multiplying the affect the weight.

Was that a standard factory option on the ParkLiner? That big rack isn't hooked up into a receiver on the Parkliner is it?

Dylan, Yes its a factory standard option. And the bike rack is new that I got on Ebay, it does stick out a bit but most bike racks do. I like this one as it keeps two bikes apart, and from getting damaged. My last bike rack wasn't far enough apart from each bike, and the bikes rubbed against each other. A lot of bike racks are made to fit both 11/4" and 2" receivers. The last one I had could do that. The only thing I don't like about carrying bikes on the rear is it blocks your taillights a bit and you have to watch the weight.

Here is a few shots inside the camper at night with my new led bulbs installed to take the place of the 921 bulbs.

I think your pictures will certainly help them sell some more trailers, it looks great.

I was very interested in the Parkliner when we were looking for a travel trailer. Only problem for me was, it's so new, you can't find a used one and the new one was out of my price range. I had plans to wait a few years but FB fever took hold and we got our 13' Scamp. I love the Scamp but that queen size bed is pretty appealing.

I like this trailer a lot. It's going to take a pretty long time to amortize the effort put into the Burro rebuild, but Parkliner's definitely on my list (with the Bonair Oxygen) of next-bigger trailers when we think about that in, oh, 10 or 15 years or so.

Hey Tim,

Is that you and your wife sitting in the picture??? If it is, it's nice to finally see you. We communicated some over the years. I still have your revamp of the 13 couch into a dinette in my folder.

Regards,

Thanks everyone for your very kind remarks. Ginny, I know what you mean as I have had plenty of used fiberglass trailers over the years. This is our first new trailer, and hopefully our last for some years I'm sure. So far we are very pleased with our new ParkLiner, and will be taking it out next week to the Adirondack's for a few days. For anyone interested in the replacement LED's for the 921 bulb I am including a picture, and I'm very happy with the new LED's so far. I got them on Ebay, 10 for $26.00 including shipping for China.
Joy , Long time no hear, and yes that is the wife and myself. I did talk with a nice lady @ Sebring in Feb. who told me you said hello. I'm thinking her name may have been Doris ? Anyway good to hear from you, and hopefully we will see each other on one of the gatherings someday. By the way Joy I still miss that little 13 that I put the front dinette in, and so does the wife.

Congratulations on your new trailer. I had never heard of ParkLiner before. Looks like a real quality unit. The queen bed would be a hit for me. Happy traveling!
